highlights and main attractions amber mountain national park
Amber Mountain National Park takes its name from the resin that is found in the local trees, said to hold medicinal qualities and still used by the local Malagasy people. Nestled near the northern tip of Madagascar, this mountainous park rises out of the drier surrounding landscape, has a cool climate and some wonderfully distinct scenery. Waterfalls, rainforests and volcanic lakes surround you, alongside an impressive level of biodiversity and plenty of endemic species of flora and fauna.
At mid-altitude, between 800 and 1500 metres above sea level, Amber Mountain has its own micro climate, suitable for itself, which is tropical, humid and wet, with rainfall reaching 3585 mm per year.
